The 5th Annual Flashlight 5K raised funds and food for the Lawrenceville Cooperative Ministry.
Just as the sun was setting over the City of Lawrenceville, more than 325 runners and walkers warmed up by stretching and jogging in place in the back of the First United Methodist Church's parking lot. Preparing for the church's 5th annual Flashlight 5k. Committee member Ann O'Steen says the name of the race not only refers to the fact that it's run at night, and volunteers help light the way with flashlights, "But it also goes with our Bible verse for the race, which comes from Psalm 119:105, 'Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.'" In addition to being an organizer of the fundraiser, O'Steen is also a runner. This is the fourth year she's laced up her sneakers for this race. Not only is the Flashlight 5k good for …

Hundreds of families turn out for first ever Early Eve in Downtown Lawrenceville.
Families with kids of all ages flocked to the Gwinnett Historic Courthouse and its grounds for one last day of fun in 2010. For the first time, Early Eve for Kids was added to the Lawrenceville Rings 2010 New Year's Eve Celebration. Rebekah Cline, marketing director for the Lawrenceville Tourism and Trade Association, says they came up with the idea because they wanted an event that was more family friendly. "Traditionally in the past, the event has been 7 to midnight each year," she said, "but this year we decided to start doing an Early Eve fest for Kids. It keeps them a little bit warmer in the daytime and also allows mom and dad to tuck them in bed a little earlier." The inaugural event featured activities for all from 3 to 6 p.m. …
Just because it looks like Gwinnett and Lawrenceville PDs have lost their radar guns, it doesn't mean the streets are going to be any less safe.
Just because it looks like local police won't have electronic means to catch speeders come Jan. 1, it doesn't mean motorists — especially New Year's Eve revelers — will have an advantage once the clock hits 12:01 a.m. One of the fallouts from the ongoing dispute over services between Gwinnett County and city leaders is that the permits needed for police forces in Gwinnett to use radar or lasers to catch speeders will expire at the end of today. But local police officials say that won't make it easier for drunk drivers to break the law after the party. According to the public information officer for Gwinnett Police, determining a DUI shouldn't be affected. "Radars and lasers are good tools for traffic enforcement, but they are not the …
